In the Print Studio: Adam Herbert
Print Studio user Adam Herbert joined the studio in November 2013 to learn about Stone Lithography and practise using the londonprintstudio facilties. It has been interesting to observe Adam’s progress over the past few months, with Technician assistance he has been able to experiment with colour and mark making to reproduce his extensive collection of sketchbook drawings.
Stone Lithography is a printing method that is based on the principle that oil and water do not mix. Using a greasy substance, an image is drawn or painted on to a flat stone. The stone is then processed and printed.
Adam Herbert says:
‘Drawing has always been at the core of my work and I love recording the world around me in my sketchbook.I started to learn lithography in October 2013, using this technique as a way of translating my sketch book pages into prints, and since then I have been hooked. I love the process of drawing and mark making directly onto the stone and the translation of these marks in to a print, it is this process that I find so exciting!”
